A new episode from Notable Tracks that has nothing to do with the theme. In addition to me talking about music that I like. But , you’re probably aware already. Anyway, let’s get to it. (I even added an extra track this time)
Baby Keem – “highway 95”
Baby Keem recently dropped the new edition of The Melodic Blue, and the top new track on the album is ” highway 95,” and it’s due in large part to the fact that it samples “Killing Me Softly” by Fugees. I began to wonder what the reason why people aren’t sampling the Fugees famous song, and then I remembered the song Fabolous released a version the same thing in 2015. It was “Real One” off Summertime Shootout. Baby Keem’s version might be more appealing, however.
Not The Twos – “Paradise”
As I went through my album backlog (Another column I should revisit) I decided to give K.Dot’s Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers another listen. A cover that’s a cover of Not The Twos’s “Paradise” can be heard on at least three tracks that are worth listening to the original also (The artwork is also worth taking a look). I was hoping for Not the Twos to release his album A Girl Who sold Drugs However, it’s been a while since the project was announced.
Ab-Soul feat. Zacari – “Do Better”
Nappyafro has created two playlists filled with music that you can listen to throughout the early morning. If we decide to make a playlist to inspire you, Ab-Soul‘s “Do Better” will definitely be included. One thing I didn’t know about before I started writing this article was it is that “Do Better” also heavily sampled the music. It’s Nick Hakim’s song from 2017 “Green Twins” ( “They will always haunt my dreams”). If you’re struggling to find improvement, try playing this track as background music. It’s a pity I did not have the enough time to make this track a separate blog when it first made its debut.
Quavo & Takeoff – “HOTEL LOBBY (Unc & Phew)” (A COLORS SHOW Performance)
R.I.P. Takeoff. Damn.
